Safeguarding and Securing the Data
ABB-VT is committed to securing your data and keeping it confidential. We take reasonable and appropriate measures to protect personal data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the personal data. We use a variety of physical and technical measures, policies, and procedures (such as access control procedures, network firewalls, encrypting data at rest, encrypting data in transit, and physical security) designed to protect our systems and all the information we collect online. Our website is hosted on a secure server with three layers of encryption. We utilize an SSL certificate. All administrative access for our accounts with third party websites for which we provide optional hyperlinks that require two-factor authentication to access.
In order to maximize security and protection for our website users, we do not directly store personal information from our website users. We have business associate agreements with reputable third party vendors (Google and Klara), and we utilize their programs directly as a method for users to provide personal information that is transmitted via encryption to the Google and Klara secure servers. Both Google and Klara have comprehensive policies in place to follow HIPAA mandates. When website visitors transmit personal information (name, date of birth, etc), this information goes directly to Google and Klara. The All Brains Belong VT staff only accesses your data through the protection of the Google and Klara servers. This data does not leave the Google and Klara servers. This data is not exchanged or sold.
ABB-VT Primary Care page
Patients of the All Brains Belong VT primary care practice are given the option of completing their medical intake and insurance forms (involving name, date of birth, contact information, insurance information, medical history, and consent forms) electronically instead of using paper forms. These are also done via Klara. Again, all information provided by patients stays on the HIPAA-secure Klara server.
Participants of the All Brains Belong VT community center are given the option of completing questionnaires to give feedback, apply for volunteer positions, and sign up for programs/events. This is done directly through the security of the Google Drive system. This website also contains optional hyperlinks directly to third party websites (Registry.com, Amazon.com, Givebox.com, Mailchimp.com), for website visitors’ convenience to access those websites.
There may be additional hyperlinks to other websites included in our text content. These sites have their own privacy policies. We suggest that you visit these sites’ individual privacy policies prior to providing personal data, as this is outside the purview of ABB-VT and this document.
